A Study of the Educational and Professional Backgrounds of Journalism Teachers in California Public High Schools with Enrollments of One Thousand or More.
Henley, David Clement
Undertaken in April and May of 1974, this study utilized a two-page, 52-item questionnaire which was mailed to 300 high school journalism teachers in the state of California. The teachers were selected by random sampling and represent 78 percent of the estimated 382 who teach at schools with enrollments of 1000 or more. One hundred seventy-six questionnaires were returned and 158 (52.6 percent) were usable for tabulation purposes. The hypotheses that high school journalism teachers lack professional and academic journalistic experience and that they desire help in improving their qualifications were borne out by the results of the study. Recommendations for improving teacher preparation in California are discussed and several solutions are suggested. (RB)
